  29. Functions of the lymphatic systems/ tissue
    1) lacteals (lymph vessels from intestines, carry chyle: digested fat: to the blood stream

    2) provide protection by destroying/ eliminating bacterial cells, virus cells, foreign antigens, dead/ dying cells

    3) collect interstitial fluid and return it to the bloodstream

  40. Facts about the right lymphatic duct
    1) 1/4 of your body drains here

    2) dumps into the subclavian vein

    3) drains the right side of the head and neck, right upper limb, and right half of the thorax
  41. Facts about the left lymphatic duct (or the THORACIC DUCT)
    1) begins at the citerna chyli (inferior end of the duct) in intestines

    2) ascends from abdomen to throrax via the aortic hiatus

    3) ascends on the right side of thorax between thoracic aorta and azygous vein

    4) crosses left posterior to esophagus (T4-T6)

    5) empties near the union of left subclavian vein and the internal jugular veins

    6) drains the left side of the head and neck, left upper limb, left thorax, entire lower limb (below the diaphragm)
